 It's Steamy Sunday!  Today we are back in the archives once again and again to the Cripple Creek and Victor Railroad.  This is an image that shows the narrow gauge track fairly well.  Narrow gauge was mainly used in mountain areas to allow for tighter turns in less of an amount of space.  It helped cut costs because they didn't have to do as much cutting out of a hillside.  On some railroads with smaller equipment like this, tunnels would not have to be as large either.
